I wonder if Mack isn’t practicing much. This is good to hear on the run game.

 

 

For the most part the board loves Mack and our RB's.  I have been skeptical about our RB group for quite sometime.  Still a long way to go so I'm hoping we have nothing to worry about.  But I have to admit I remain concerned about that group.  Not only can they perform but are they durable?  We will see.

I've always said, you want to be peaking in week two of August...

Genuinely feel terrible for Reece.    I was following him on social media, he had a crazy year last year. I think he had a daughter, lost a close member of family, all the time trying to acc

so after the injury  to one of our best camp players the browns decided to go full gangster and start mouthing off and throwing players to the ground after plays. I'm glad the colts aren't taking any crap. why act like * after an injury like that??

What a joke, I get maybe a skirmish or two but it sounds like this has turned into an all out brawl. End this crap and never do it again, not worth it. And that really sucks about Fountain, ugh!

It’s probably my over reaction but every year there is a team you think is going to be great and they go backwards. I think it’s possible it’s the colts this year.

IMO the Colts blew 2 things BIG this off season.

 

The seemingly lackadaisical response to Luck's injury since March.  Huge.

 

And the off season where they picked up.....wait for it....D Funchess.

 

Meanwhile the Browns went full out and look how much better they are.

 

I think this training camp should show the Colts management that trying to be patient and build that 'perfect team' through the draft is iffy at best.  With Luck out, and who knows when he will be back, the window of opp for any NFL team other than the Pats is very very small.

 

They had the opp to add 2 or 3 great players this year in Bell, Odell, and AB. 

 

We got D Funchess.

 

Obviously with Luck being injured now signing those guys may not have mattered, but at the time they seemed like good fits.  Just goes to show you how quickly things can change.

A lot of people getting down on the Colts for a poor performance today. Have to remember, it’s practice, they’re not showing all their cards, and Luck along with a few other players are not out there. We will be fine.

 

And I’m having a hard time believing there’d be such a dramatic scheme change between Oline coaches that would cause our oline to fall apart this season, gotta remember it’s all the same players that for the most part dominated last year. Once again, this is practice, I doubt they’re going 100 percent, JMO.

You would think but they have struggled all camp.

I'm not sure if this is official or just this guy's guess. But both a dislocation and a fracture? That wouldn't be good.

 

 

Man this sucks. I was really high on the guy this year.

 

Although they can hide him on IR this year now and not have to worry so much about cutting another wr.

Also worth noting that I don’t think they’ve been healthy as a whole group all thru camp either

Nelson and Kelley haven’t played all of Camp, Nelson just came back today. They’ll be ok.

Reich is not happy. This could turn out to be the worst decision he has made.

 

 

The entire thing never made any sense to me.

 

You go from one of the worst OLs to one of the best....and you fire the guy?  Over a disagreement with a backup?

 

I don't get it.


I love Mudd, but he is way past his prime.  IMO, and I said this back when it happened, this could be a giant mistake.

tell that to steelers fans they still think the browns are going 5-11 and they are walking away with the division. not this year its different

FWIW I have the Browns winning the AFC North at 10-6. I dislike the Steelers as much as I do the Patriots. Based on what I see on paper and by my eye test the way the Browns played last season, I see 10-6. Baker is the real deal.

No question.

 

My point is trying to build that perfect team by being patient?  In the NFL that really doesn't work unless you have a BB from the Pats as your head guy.  Normal NFL teams have a 2-3 year window to work with.  Hopefully the Colts get a little more aggressive next off season.

 

At this point I am predicting the Colts go 8-8 give or take a game.  I think it has been a very bad off season and training camp and believe it or not that does carry over to the season.

 

I love the Browns this year.  IMO they have a chance to go to the SB.  Had a great off season.  Great training camp so far.  Lots of positive energy. 

 

Meanwhile the Colts have had nothing but negativity.

All I'll say about the OL is it's really not too out there to suggest a step back is *possible*. Sirianni did say the OL's been bested most of camp by the DL (which, on the other hand, says good things about our DL). And aside from a few days missed by Nelson and Kelly, they've mostly all been out there. Not to mention it's possible if not likely at least one man goes down on the OL at some point.

I know "regression" talk is pretty much shunned here, but it's entirely possible.

They need to hire Peyton for something.  At least get him involved.

 

Really surprised they haven't so far.

You mean the oline? That was the case last year either (Castonzo missing, a lot of puzzling with the starters, etc.)

 

I would not draw conclusions about the OL based on TC though. If there's a unit - as a unit - who a) needs the most time to get themselves together, b) affected by game planning and play calling the most, it's the OL (and QB). So even if they'll start the season somewhat struggling, they can pretty much get themselves together by game 3 or 4, if they stay healthy. It's a talented unit. I have seen numerous "bad" Patriots olines in september, but I can't remember any bad Patriots olines from november-to-january. If Mudd still has his mojo - why wouldn't he? OL is not much different than 10-15 years ago -, hewill take care of them. As Scharneccia does it in Boston.

Tough break for Fountain, he looked great in camp. Rogers will probably make the team for sure now. I like Rogers but feel bad for Fountain.


I think Rogers was always safe because we need sure hands at PR. I think it means Pascal is definitely safe though.

How do you know that? You could also say that the injury upset the Colts and they were on edge the rest of the practice. 

 

My guess is that it affected BOTH teams. You saw how both teams went up to him while he was down. It changed the whole complexion of the practice. I don't think you could blame either team. What should have been done, imo, is that both coaches should have gathered everyone around and stressed how one person already got injured (non-contact), and while everyone is upset it serves notice that everyone should be cool.

I know that cause the colts players were the ones repeatedly getting thrown to the ground after plays

    • Good post on Hilton: One critical element, regarding Hilton is; who’s going to be throwing to him? People say he’s declining and to some degree that’s true but he really hasn’t had a “gunslinger” throwing to him since Luck and I believe that effects people’s perception of him.       I like Mack but he may warrant better money elsewhere. If Taylor went down, it would be nice to plug him in and having running backs with “fresh legs” at the end of the year, would be key in making a postseason run.      Hooker is expendable. I hope they find a way to keep Rhodes. (It’s going to be interesting to see how the secondary shakes out).     I think they’ll keep Autry and/or Houston but that could change if they think Lewis could step in.      I disagree that MAC is a “one note player”. He’s an above average blocker, a good route runner and good at 50/50 balls. He was hampered by injury, so he looks lumbering in his receiving game but I don’t think we’ve seen the best of his game yet.      
    • I believe Houston was on the feild more than Autry too. Never mind Autry was played a bit more.
    • TY Hilton - If he's not willing to take a paycut down to WR2 money then I'm fine with moving on from him.  Loved what he's done for the org but he's not a WR1 anymore.  I'd rather pay him WR2 money and sign a True #1.   Marlon Mack - His spot at this point is taken.  I'm fine with moving forward with JT, Hines, and possibly drafting a young bruiser or signing a vet for cheap.  If he's willing to come back on a prove it deal then fine, otherwise he can test the market.   Justin Houston - Resign him.  2yr deal with an option.  Coming off one of his best years.  He was definitely our best pass rusher.  Health isn't a concern but age is.  I'd say bring him back.  Not too expensive however.  That may prove to be a problem if he's looking to cash out before retirement.   Denico Autry - I want to bring him back, but if another team try to force us to overpay for him then we should let him walk.   Xavier Rhodes - I was impressed by Rhodes this year.  Bring him back, but not for #1 CB money.  I don't think he's there.  #2 CB money for him and I'm ok.   Anthony Walker Jr. - He can walk.  We need an upgrade.  I'd be fine with drafting his replacement.  But if we can't find anyone I'm down to bring him back.   Malik Hooker - Same as Marlon Mack.  JB has taken his spot.  Either come back on a prove it deal or he can walk also.   Jacoby Brissett - We need to wait and see how our QB search plays out.  If we are able to grab Wentz, Staff, or Wats, then I'm ok with Eason being the backup.  But if we fail on the 3 mentioned and Ballard isn't sold on Eason, I'm fine with JB being a stopgap.  He'll play good enough to keep us competitive but not so good where we have trash draft capital.   Zach Pascal - IDK about this one.  We need to upgrade at WR but due injuries depth is a concern.  50/50.   Mo-Alie Cox - Resign ASAP!  I think MAC is a diamond in the rough.  I honestly think he can be the next Antonio Gates.  Not sure why we don't utilize him more.  
    • The short term future unless they trade a kings ransom to trade or trade up. 
    • I see that also.  He has a great relationship with the team and staff.  I can honestly see this happening if they aren't sold on Eason or can't make any moves.  I wouldn't like this move if we overpay however.
